Join us this Summer for an All-Church Campout on the Poudre River!
Located just 40 miles northwest of Fort Collins, Colorado.
Dates: May 28 – 31, 2017
There is plenty to do for all ages and types – from campfires to fishing to hiking to enjoying the campground amenities. You are responsible for your own meals, but Unity will provide the s’mores! Let’s dance around the fire, sing songs, and celebrate nature together! Also, enjoy daily group hikes, and daily group meditations in the mornings followed by yoga. And, we’ll take trip to the Shambala Center (just 5 miles from camp) one of the days.
Mountain Park Campground is located on the Cache la Poudre River, 40 miles northwest of Fort Collins, Colorado, along Highway 14. Visitors enjoy the area for its great rafting, fishing and hiking opportunities.
The canyon’s vegetation varies from dense forests to open meadows, surrounded by steep mountains. A forest of ponderosa pine trees covers the campground, which is situated on the banks of the Cache la Poudre River, Colorado’s first National Wild and Scenic River.
The Cache La Poudre River offers whitewater rafting and fishing. Anglers cast for brown, cutthroat and rainbow trout.
Hiking, biking and horseback riding trails are in the surrounding area, including the Mt. McConnel Trail, William R. Kreutzer National Recreation Trail and Young Gulch Trail.
Volleyball and basketball courts, a playground and horseshoe pits are located in the campground. Other popular activities include birding and wildlife viewing. Also, the Shambala Center is about 5 miles from camp. We will probably take a field trip there on Tuesday.
The campground offers accessible single- and double-family sites, and a group site that can accommodate up to 75 people. Sites 1 through 32 have electric hookups. Sites 33 through 54 do not have hookups.
Picnic tables, 12×15′ tent pads, campfire rings and grills are provided, as are vault toilets and drinking water. Coin showers are located on-site. Dead and downed firewood may be gathered in the forest or purchased from the host.
